His political career began in 1991 when he was appointed as the country's finance minister under late Prime Minister PV Narasimha Rao.

It was the same year during which he helped usher in "liberalisation and privatisation" to the Indian economy.

Singh was born in Gah in undivided Punjab on this day in 1932.
